Russian gas deliveries to Europe through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline across the Baltic Sea dipped slightly on Wednesday, while gas continued to flow eastwards from Germany into Poland along the Yamal-Europe pipeline.

Flows to Germany through Nord Stream 1 stood at 65,361,776 kilowatt hours per hour (kWh/h) by 0728 GMT, slightly down from 67,955,181 kWh/h at midnight, the Nord Stream website showed.

Eastbound flows into Poland from Germany along the Yamal-Europe pipeline were at 1,717,560 kWh/h at the Mallnow border point, down from 2,362,830 kWh/h at midnight, data from operator Gascade showed.

The usually westbound pipeline reversed on March 15 as nominations to ship gas into Germany fell to zero, while Polish customers bought gas from Germany. 

Russia's Gazprom said it was continuing to supply natural gas to Europe via Ukraine in line with requests from European consumers. 

Nominations stood at 106.5 million cubic metres for March 23, down from 108 million cubic metres for March 22, it said.

Nominations for flows into Slovakia from Ukraine via the Velke Kapusany border point were also stable at 881,408 megawatt hours (MWh) per day, data from Slovakian operator TSO Eustream showed.
